Mount Hermon Female Seminary (1875-1924) in Clinton, Mississippi was a historically black institution of higher education for women.

Founded in 1875 by Sarah Ann Dickey,[1] the school was patterned after Dickey's alma mater, Mount Holyoke Female Seminary[2] (now Mount Holyoke College). The school was funded in part by the Slater Fund for the Education of Freedmen from its founding until 1891.[3]

The seminary was eventually closed in 1924 by the American Missionary Association, which had its own college in Tougaloo, Mississippi.[3]
